Which of the following statements about the term of office of the Chief Minister is not correct ?

Solution:

Option B is the correct answer
The term of the Chief Minister is not fixed and holds the office during the pleasure of Governor till support of majority in legislative assembly.
The Constitution does not contain any specific procedure for the selection and appointment of the Chief Minister. Article 164 only says that the Chief Minister shall be appointed by the governor. However, this does not imply that the governor is free to appoint any one as the Chief Minister. In accordance with the conventions of the parliamentary system of government, the governor has to appoint the leader of the majority party in the state legislative assembly as the Chief Minister. But, when no party has a clear majority in the assembly, then the governor may exercise his personal discretion in the selection and appointment of the Chief Minister. In such a situation, the governor usually appoints the leader of the largest party or coalition in the assembly as the Chief Minister and ask him to seek a vote of confidence in the House within a month.
The term of the Chief Minister is not fixed and he holds office during the pleasure of the governor. However, this does not mean that the governor can dismiss him at any time. He cannot be dismissed by the governor as long as he enjoys the majority support in the legislative assembly. But, if he loses the confidence of the assembly, he must resign or the governor can dismiss him.

Which of the statements; given above is/are correct?

Solution:

Government (executive)  requires the approval of the Parliament before drawing and expending funds. The presentation and passing of the budget take time more than predicted. Since Parliament is not able to vote the full budget before the commencement of the new financial year, there is a requirement of funds by the government to keep things running as usual.
Vote on the account is a grant in advance which enables the government to carry on until the full budget, demand of grants, finance bill, and appropriation bill is passed.
The vote on account only deals with the expenditure side of the government's budget.
An interim budget in a way is a full budget but it is made by the government in last year of its term i.e., before the election. It includes both expenditure and receipts.
